A superbly easy, confidence builder that just may get you hooked on Stapeliads. Light green, ribbed stems about a half inch in diameter with rubbery, soft spines. Grows to about 8 to 12 inches tall then lays over to become procumbent or pendant. Looks good in a hanging pot. A faithful bloomer, flowers are abundant, about an inch across, red with a slight brownish cast and darker disc in the center. Bell-like flowers are stellate, with petals that recurve at the tips during anthesis. A choice plant.
